Times letter narey response jan 2014

  1. 1. Published at 12:01AM, January 16 2014 The day I that was taken into care turned out to be the luckiest day of my long life Sir, Sir Martin Narey is right (Jan 13) that the birth parents are often not best suited to care for a child. I was taken into care at 6 and after four years in children’s homes and with foster parents I was fortunate to be fostered with a family that changed my life. At 16 I returned to my mother and saw the life I would have lived if I had not been removed. As soon as I was able I joined the Armed Forces in order to escape. When I look back over 70 years I consider the day I was taken into care to be the luckiest day of my life. John Trott Barwell, Leics
